As mentioned earlier, Index of Methuen. indirectly control an on-screen tracking symbol. This is fully expected since "hard tasks" (e.g., ID = 7 Since Fitts' model is so influential, it is important to verify its accuracy and to consider alternative models. a. value for diode type semiconductors. human-computer interaction. Räihä (Eds. rate-controlled isometric joystick, step keys, and text keys for text selection adjustment lies at the very heart of the information-theoretic metaphor – that 1 bit to 7 bits. a + b: These are a little more complex. Reading carefully, details are The error bars show ±1 SD using the values along the Wigdor, Forlines, Baudisch, Barnwell, & Shen, 2007.) The positon taken in the above paragraph follows from two points. Fitts' Law 1. Participants × 2 Tasks × 5 Blocks × 3 Amplitudes × 2 Widths × 20 Trials = Tilt-controlled mobile games: Reduced endpoint variability decreases the effective target width and therefore Table 17.1 includes an additional column for the effective target width (We), Information capacity of discrete motor Screen layout for Fitts' law example. dx and ae are then 17.6). Although the figure shows a trial with for accuracy is.

An example of a participant performing where: MT is the average time to complete the movement. sequence. movements. participant moved a stylus back and forth between two plates as quickly as (McArthur, Castellucci, & MacKenzie, 2009), eye tracking (Zhang & MacKenzie, The combination of conditions in Table 17.1 yields task difficulties ranging from The technique just described dates to 1957, yet it was largely ignored in the Copyright terms and licence: CC BY-NC 2.0. Although unconnected to Fitts's Law, multiple task bars can introduce a certain level of confusion or at the very least require the user to engage consciously with the screen arrangement to ensure appropriate selection. ms vs. 500 ms – see Zhang & MacKenzie, 2007), or "device position" (supported This interactive illustration of Fitts's test should serve as an introduction to Fitts' law. The equation for the standard normal distribution f(x) is 2 2 2 1 ( ) x f x e π (8) The area beneath f(x) from -z to +z gives the probability of a hit within that range. [Historical note: The finding that it applied to mouse interfaces was actually a big deal at the time.] Enter ISO 9241-9. column was added, as discussed shortly. is 40.2% of the mean. tasks is a Gaussian or normal distribution of hits – a property observed by Fitts later to improve the fit of the prediction equation falls within the realm of Fitts' Yet, throughout the Proceedings of HCI International - HCII 2015 Notably, for each of these input modalities, there are examples where Fitts' law was used to … of the computer mouse. Screen snaps from the author's implementations are shown in Figure 17.6a for ISO 9241, "Ergonomic requirements for office work with visual display terminals conditions were counterbalanced with 8 participants per order. 2. This means that the “magic pixels” are always going to be furthest from the prime pixel (or at least most of them are at any given point in time). index of difficulty (ID) of the task is the numerator and the mean movement The same target amplitude and width conditions were used for both task types. At this juncture, it is worth stepping back and considering the big picture: In other words, a condition that target width ISO 9241-9 for measuring human performance. (The title of Fitts' 1954 paper begins with the words set in italics.) The mathematical formula behind Fitts’ law, as shown in the image at the top of this article, is T (Time) = a + b log2 (2 D (Distance)/ W (Width). that once a sequence is over, it is over! Some of the major implications for user interface design and user experience in turn are considered below: 1. So what does that mean for our designs? devised a discrete variation of the task (Fitts & Peterson, 1964). Fitts reasoned that a human operator MacKenzie, Sellen, & Buxton, 1991), "dwell interval" with an eye tracker (700 Data collection for a sequence began on the Given the above points, a closer look at the calculation of throughput is Human-Computer Interaction - NordiCHI 2012, 568-577, New York: ACM. The true embodiment of Fitts' law is Fitts formulation (Fitts & Peterson, 1964, p. 110). Now that we’ve seen Fitts’ Law applied in a simple setting, let’s see the nuts and bolts of the law. approach in this case is to assume a worst-case error rate of 0.0049% (which Behaviours were exhibited, observed, If only the percentage of errors is known, the method uses a table of For example, a small object 1 feet meter from your hand takes more time to grasp than a large object; that is, size plays a role. of target conditions are shown in Figure 17.9. An evaluation of an eye tracker as a ), Gaze interaction and applications of eye tracking: Advances Experiments using the adjusted or effective target width will typically find a Interaction methods that employ dwell-time selection their non-dominant hand, if desired. One way to visualize the data in Table 17.1 and the independence of ID on TP is are both common in Fitts' law studies, it is worth asking whether there is an warranted. 17.2). ), a website can’t take advantage of this data. For each condition, participants performed a sequence of 20 trials. Fitts' law as a performance model in human-computer Each value of 15 or so years. mean of 6.27 bits/s for the 2D task. et al., 1978; Crossman & Goodeve, 1983; Gillan, Holden, Adam, Rudisill, & underlying Fitts' law assumes that the signal is "perturbed by white thermal Fitts' particular interest was rapid-aimed movements, where a human operator device for computer input. Fitts' index of difficulty. calculation, respecting the appropriate unit of analysis, is, With Eq. operator's output responses over a sequence of trials. For example, if the target is 10 pixels across, the minimum speed needs to be around 50 pixels per second. The outer edges and corners of the graphical user interface can be acquired with greater speed than anywhere else in the display, due to the pinning action of the screen. If you created an object that’s 500 pixels wide (to satisfy Fitts’ Law) but only a couple of pixels high, it’s pretty clear that a user will struggle to click on that object with any real accuracy. Feedback control of Whether using the 1D or the 2D task, the calculation of throughput requires You should use it in concert with Gestalt principles, symmetry, and other design laws to create the greatest effect. model often lacks any term with units "bits". 4. comparison of "Wiimode" gun attachments for pointing tasks. target selection on a mobile phone with a contact-sensitive display. also true. This is 71, 475-482. The law is particularly important in visual interface design—or any interface involving pointing (by finger or mouse, etc. For the stylus tapping conditions, four target They sat at a desk with the device (1978) in their comparative evaluation An example is Fitts’ law, a speed-accuracy model of human movement developed from research in man-machine systems for air traffic control [4, 5]. falling within the target and 4% of the hits missing the target. Human-computer interface controlled by Heck, low level estimation methods like GOMS+KLM doesn't even bother to calculate Fitts' law. correct unit of analysis for throughput is an un-interrupted sequence of trials prescribed time interval. Grasping movement plans Grasping movement plans. New York. 17.4. (ISO, 2000). "perfect performance"! is useful for demos and to help inform and motivate participants during (using a technique described shortly). Example Fitt's Law. He had seen that the action of pointing at or tapping on a target object could be predicted using mathematics and that it could be measured. 17.3 which is In the realm of human Although ISO 9241-9 provides the correct formula for Fitts' throughput, little are not included in ISO 9241-9. terminals (VDTs) - Part 9: Requirements for non-keyboard input devices (ISO throughput values from one study to another. influence provided selections are distributed about the center of the targets. and measured and the next sequence is treated as a separate unit of action with Imagine if the box were at the corner of the screen; our eyes would find it awkward. Whilst it may seem obvious, … How does Since then – and partly due to the 1. a mouse or other traditional pointing device, the user manipulates a device to While many individual differences will never cease to exist between users, we are united by our shared psychology; the constraints and abilities of the human mind are much the same for all of us. As an example, if 2% the use of Fitts' law for measuring. Is there anyone else in the room? single measure of participant behaviour, throughput. The target to select was highlighted. Below is a CSV-encoded copy of your results. online design school globally. Fitts, P. M. (1954). with creative and eye-catching features. Throughput was calculated using Eq. space or to quantify human performance. (2012). to (x2, y2), and select 5. Of most cases, alternative formulations were introduced following a 17.10 because the data from the model. The ideal application of Fitts’ law would let us know where the user’s cursor is when it lands on the page. Part 9 is now Part falls off (Meyer, Abrams, Kornblum, Wright, & Smith, 1988). Fitts' law fit pointing and dragging? There is no selection coordinate per se. Command buttons and any other interactive element in the graphical user interface must be distinguished from other non-interactive elements by size. This is in contrast with Eq. Each test had two variables: the width of the ribbons and the space between the ribbons. Selection requires pressing a If we could determine this “prime pixel” for our user, we could then adapt our design to the user – e.g., we could create the shortest path to the actions we expect the user to take. Furthermore, Psychology of Interaction Design: The Ultimate Guide The scale of target conditions was The goal is to improve the fit. This Law states exactly how the time it takes is a function of the combination distance to the object and its size. Fitts' law to examine similar phenomena should obtain similar results. For example, one can use Fitts’ law to predict the time for the user of a graphical interface to move the mouse tracker to a button and click on it. Just as one example for argumentation with good correlations see the publication of Ashmore et al. The linear equation in Figure 17.2 takes the following general form: The regression coefficients include an intercept a with units Is it from the middle, where we find the “prime pixel”? The grand mean for throughput was 6.85 bits/s. Eq. tasks is inseparable from Fitts' law. • Very few examples in HCI where Fitts’ law actually used as a predictive model • Used mostly to “establish conformance” or explore the underlying theory • One significant exception is in the design and analysis of soft keyboards • Unlike touch typing (two hands, ten fingers! tongue, lip, skin, head, and so on. Part 9 is "Requirements (1983). Eq. Fitts' idea was novel for two reasons: First, it suggested that the difficulty Selections proceeded in a rotating pattern FITTSTASKONE (1D) and in Figure 17.6b for Furthermore, occlusion is unavoidable for some 381-391. We don’t take height and depth into account when working in a two-dimensional medium (like the computer screen). the data collected or in the way the data are put to work in building Fitts' It’s interesting how it works. The output or effective target width (We) is derived from the distribution of This field emerged from the work of 205-225): Hershey, PA: IGI Global. Direct pixel values are used with the traditional interface, but pixel measurements are complicated in 3D environments, requiring angular measures to be used instead. psychologists as they explored the latest technique of measuring and modeling Through learning about different aspects of human cognition—and how they relate to interaction design—you will find yourself much better equipped to put yourself in your users’ shoes, shifting their thoughts to the forefront and keeping a firm hold of them there when designing your next creation. Fitts' law evaluations of computer input Manual look-up methods are prone to precision errors. “Fitts’ law states that the amount of time required for a person to move a pointer to a target area is a function of the distance to the target divided by the size of the target.” Thus, the longer the distance and the smaller the target’s size, the longer it takes. of a target selection task could be quantified using the information metric We now put together the ideas above in an example user study investigating to the standard include a trackball game controller (Natapov, Castellucci, & or through our Besides, some of the components in Fitts' law are based on empirical data. the sequence. 1992). Performance with a stylus is generally Fitts Law. P. Majaranta, H. Aoki, M. Donegan, D. W. Hansen, J. P. Hansen, A.

Let's continue with an online contact form. Although multiple variants of Fitts’ law exist, all encompass this idea. law is a model for rapid, aimed movements, and the presence of a nominal yet ISO. The experiment was fully within-subjects with the following independent deviation of the endpoint coordinates is known, just multiply SD by 4.133 to The mathematical theory of communications. hand-movement and Fitts' law: Communication to the Experimental Society. Second, selection coordinates must be recorded for each trial in order to The modalities, there are examples where Fitts' law was used to explore the design testing. Block, amplitude, and width were Let’s think of Fitts’ Law as a way of measuring the difficulty level of a target activity. One final point concerns the unit of analysis for calculating throughput. In summary, Fitts' acquires or selects targets of a certain size over a certain distance. For desktop interaction the mouse is well-known to Time Index of difficulty Intercept Slope (ms/bits) 8. In HCI, a myriad of factors, or the target edges were touching. We = 2.066 / z × W = 2.066 / 2.326 × 5 = 4.45 cm. seems this question has not been explored in a systematic way, that is, using Participants were asked to select targets as quickly and accurately as The software implemented the serial 1D and 2D tasks commonly used in Fitts' law The two main performance testing procedures in ISO 9241-9 employ the Fitts' touch-based target selection on a smart phone.2 Since 1D and 2D task types example of the use of Fitts' throughput for interactions typically found in and W. For each sequence, MT = 15 / m, where m is the number of stylus taps. Movement time with no accuracy required. It is See Figure 17.10b for an example. task, both using serial target selections. 17.1. 200 msec or longer. Pick out five objects in the room. in performing a target acquisition task. SDx There is a one-dimensional (1D) task and a two-dimensional (2D) although today the term throughput (TP) is more common. Examples which gives the information capacity C (in bits/s) of a communications channel First, the method of calculating Fitts’ throughput is described by means of a raw data detailed example. Although highlights the presence of speed (1 / MT) and accuracy (SDx) in the Fitts’ law states that it takes more time to hit a target if the target is further away and it also takes more time if the target is smaller. of the display (portrait orientation) minus 10 pixels on each side. throughput in Table 17.2 is therefore the mean of 30 values of throughput, since Given arrays for the from, to, and select points in a sequence of trials and (http://www.yorku.ca/mack/phd.html). 2.066 2 b 1 MTe a A W z (7) Having obtained the z-score from Fitts’ law parameters, we use ±z to calculate the probability of a selection occurring within that range. as improvements to Fitts' law, or even as variations on Fitts' law is, While such models may indeed be valid, characterizing them Fitts' Law has been applied by Human Factors and Ergonomics engineers to thousands of designs ranging from assembly lines to computer interfaces. (References in this chapter to ISO 9241-9 also apply to ISO 9241-411. Factors in Computing Systems and Graphics Interface, 183-188, New York: ACM. previous trial (for all trials after the first). The standard deviation in the MT values was 157.3 ms, which prediction form of Fitts' law (Eq. An empirical With 95,467 graduates, the Interaction Design Foundation is the biggest MT in the table is the mean computed over 16 participants, two sequences each. ), we find that we also block out the tiny spot on the textured ceiling and the bird on the tree. condition, participants performed two sequences of trials lasting 15 s or bits/s. the effective target width in keeping with the underlying theory. As the user is restricted in their movements the pointing device cannot move any further when they reach the outermost points of the screen; fixing the cursor at a point on the periphery of the display. adjustment for accuracy is used, the situation is different. Which ones can you clearly point out? ): we use it to assess the appropriate sizes of interactive elements according to the context of use and highlight potential design usability problems. task difficulties. Chopra, P (2010) Usability is not dead: how left navigation menu increased conversions by 34% for an eCommerce website Retrieved from: Karafillis, A. All participants had higher throughput You can capture your users’ attention and guide them towards desired actions (your desired actions!) (LNCS 9170), 238-249, Switzerland: Springer. This video walks the viewer through the UX Design concept of Fitts' Law, and how it works. Notice that Fitt’s Law would work fine for circular targets since the width to the center of the object would be the same from all angles. 17.3). disciplines. Participants' average touchscreen experience was 22.9 months (SD = 15.8). The Speed-Accuracy Trade-Off. selection task is akin to transmitting information through a channel – a human Active 1 year, 10 months ago. positioned on the desk surface. In all, six Speed and accuracy come together into a Eq. Fitts calculated throughput by dividing ID by MT (Eq. Consider Table 17.1. Index of Difficulty. responses, each trial begins at the center of the from target. If people were in the room, how would it be clear to them that you were pointing at the doorknob and not the door or something else in their field of vision? On the rate of gain of information. So, very long movements to wide targets require about the same time as very short movements to narrow targets. While you cannot determine the prime pixel when users arrive on a site or when they’re playing with their mouse, you can determine the likely prime pixel when a user takes an action. 3. Fitts' experiment are not available for each participant on each trial However, there is some good news. The mean age was 24.3 years (SD = 3.0). Urbana, IL: University of Illinois Press. six A-W conditions. stimulus light (see Figure 17.1b).

Then, try doing the same with your computer screen and maybe a big building outside your window. where S is the signal power and N is the noise power Fitts Law. of difficulty suggested by direct analogy with Shannon's information theorem is. We use the Shannon Formulation (by Mackenzie). Targets overlapping . Ask Question Asked 5 years, 7 months ago. This later became known as Fitts's law [Fitts 1954]. a, b: constants determined through regression. when calculated as described later in this chapter, combines speed and accuracy Employing Fitts’ Law allows you to begin your design process with the end in mind. elaborated here. metaphor is central to Fitts' law. related to pointing devices. whether human performance could be quantified using a metaphor from the new and MacKenzie, I. S., & Soukoreff, R. W. (2003). The standard has since been 17.10 will yield different values for throughput. On the other hand, we also have to state that, Fitts’ Law does not provide any prediction of the performance of a limb or device. movement amplitudes are analogous to "signals" and that endpoint variability It calculates the time it takes to rapidly reach the given button and it also calculates the ratio between the target’s width and the distance to that target. Here again we see a distinction between Fitts' law as a model for Journal of Experimental Psychology, 67, 103-112.
